    well I dont know how to write this but here goes...

    I will be 23 when I start at NTU in September and im a bit worried every one will be younger then me, So I've booked college drive for my accommodation. hoping to meet other mature students before I more down, or even students that are all ready studying at NTU.
    I'm studying childhood studies at Clifton :-) looking forward to the uni life.

    Cheers for reading, hope to hear off some of you soon

    The maltings is about 2 miles from the city site, but you get a free travel pass, so it won't cost you anything to get to campus. I'm staying in flat 104. Going to the offer holders open day tomorrow, so I'm going to have a look round and see what the area's like.

    Age wise, I am the top trump here! I will be starting a course full time in September and the following month I shall be the ripe old age of 49. My student debt should be paid off by the time I am 84. I am just so delighted to finally see my dreams of becoming a teacher one step closer to reality. Age is only a number. Go ahead and enjoy student life, stop sweating the small stuff.

    I'm 23, from the US, postgrad at the brackenhurst campus but decided to live in the city center. I booked Gill Street but now I'm not sure, do many postgrads / mature students live there? Kind of thinking now that I should have looked in the private sector. there are just so many options.

    I'll be 22 by the time of starting, assuming I get in! I would also be studying at brackenhurst but living in the city! I was going to choose gill street or the new accommodation but I have now chosen to go private at Victoria hall as you can get a double room there for £103 a week compared to gill street £125/130! I would ring and ask them if you are able to get out of your contract if you are having doubts, you would defo be saving a lot going private! Goldsmith court also looks really nice! what are you hoping to study? Hope this helps a bit!

    Oh awesome! I hope you get it. Yeah I actually looked up private halls today. I'll probably end up losing my deposit, but since I havent fully agreed to the terms yet I don't have the contract - which is good haha, I can still back out. I think I'm going with a private hall, either Victoria, or iQ looked great as well.
    I'm studying Endangered Species Recovery and Conservation, what about you?

    That sounds interesting Endangered Species Recovery and Conservation. Is that like Pandas and Rare birds? You'll be travelling all over the world with that then I suppose?
    I'm studying history which pales into insignificance next to an impressive title like yours.

    NTU definitely drew me in with their program. Brackenhurst has its own conservation projects, which makes it a great campus - they've worked on restoring a type of newt, haha. So, big and small I hope I get to travel with it!

    and hey, history is impressive. I'm so interested in it, but I was never able to grasp it in high school / college. I'd love to be able to accumulate all of that knowledge of so many things. Might not have a big long title, but its a great thing to study.

    Yes history is interesting I specialise in architecture and hope to travel a bit more. What's NTU? I'd love to get into nature what kind of newt is it exactly?
    I recently moved from London to rural west wales it's so nice to sit here in the peace and quiet listening to birdsong rather than sirens etc.
    The pembrokeshire coast is stunning. I've seen dolphins and seals which amazed me for them to be here at first.Still, I bet if you looked hard enough theres wildlife in london.
    What qualifications did you do to get on the endangered species conservation course your doing?

    Oh I bet there's plenty of opportunity for travel when you're studying architecture. That's really great.
    The newt is called the Great-crested newt. They study its population patterns every year and try to keep it from declining, which I suppose it has been steadily.

    I know nothing of the cities or towns there, I'd love to learn and then get to them. Especially the coast.

    I just graduated with a regular Biology degree, but then I had applied to vet school and was put on the wait list. A lot of my animal experience has been in conservation so it's a subject I've wanted to focus on (wildlife, or zoo animal) This was my alternative plan, but I'm pretty happy with it.

    Yeah the great crested newt a beautiful creature I hope you can save them, it seems the more distinct an animal is the more endangered it becomes.
    Here theres a problem with swans signets being devoured by beavers, do you know of any way to prevent this from happening? It'd be great to save some.

    Yeah the scope for travel in architecture is huge whenever I go on holiday I always end up in a city e.g venice I love venice. I just want to go to the beach lol.

    good luck with your studies

    yeah you might lose your deposit but you will save soo much money over the space of the year so is probably worth it! I thought IQ looked good too, but think I have decided on Victoria now, I keep changing my mind but Victoria have doubles rooms which would be so nice! haha! i'm hoping to be doing the veterinary nursing degree, brackenhurst is so lovely, but I just felt living in the city would be more fun!!
